patch to The Daily Telegraph say.s that 
a CU«cJt sustained by the Garibaldian 
Legion whereby they lost all their of-

gave rise to the rumor of a Turkish vic-

After tliree month."*' consideration and 
several conferences with the representa- 
tive of the Great Northern Itailway 
Company, the City Council yesterday re- 
fused to accept tho offer of the com- 
l.any of J60.000 (?36.000 to the city and 
1524,1)00 to the Provincial Government) 
in full settlement of the claims which 
tlie city and Government have against 
tlie Victoria and Sidney Hallway Com- 
pany, the control of which is now vest- 
ed In the Great Northern. 

Instead, the city advanced a counter 
offer, expressing Its willingness to ac- 
cept $1011,000 In full settlement on the 
basis of a cash payment of »6O.(J0O and 
tlie balance In (Ive annual Instalments 
ot $8000. tlie company to pay tlie annual 
interest on the »300.000 bonds issued 
by the V. & S. Company, whlcli haveetill 
five more years to run, and tlie Interest 
oil vvliich the. city and Government have 
been forced for the past twenty years 
to pay owing to tlic Company's Inability 
to pay the same out of net earnings. 

Mr. L. C. Gilman, general superintend- 
ent of the western lines of the Great 
Northern Railway, who was present at 
the meeting, refused point blank to ac- 
cept the offer on behalf of the Great 
Northern liailway. though he consented 
to forward the city's decision to the 
Company's head office. 

Yesterday's meeting wbjs called for 
the purpose of meeting with Mr. Gil- 
man, who came over from Seattle. The 
Council had already given some con- 
sideration to tlie report which Mr. I'-or- 
sythe, on behalf of the city, had sub- 
mitted as a result of the audit of the 
books of the Victoria and Sidney Rail- 
way Company. 

Aooapta Andltor'a Xeport 

Mr. Gilman had little objection to the 
report, staling that he believed It corre- 
sponded with the statement which the 
Company iiad already submitted to the 
city. He had no recollection of any 
statement being made by himself or the 
company indicating that the Sidney ter- 
minals were not held In the name of the 
V, & s. Company; and If any member of 
the City Council ha.^ gained the Im- 
pression that an attempt had been made 
to Imply that the Sidney terminals as 
well as the city terminals were held by 
the Victoria Tenmlnal Railway and 
Ferry Co., such was not the case. The 
V. T. R. & V. Company paid the money 
for the land and waterfront at Sidney 
and taken title, but admittedly in the 
Interests of the V. A 8. Company. The 
half-acre owned by the 'V. A 8. Company 
at Sidney, on which Is the Well supply- 
ing Sidney with water, bctongcd to the 
V. & S.. but It had not been made iivaH- 
able for any charge under the bond in- 

Mr. Oilman declared the Great 
Northern could offer no more than tt 
had. In adauibn to the $«0,000 offered 
there must be pr6vldetf $100,000 for 
bettemw'nta. and In tha fiva yearn of 
ttie unexpired term of the bonds nbout 
175,000 must be paid for Intereat, and 
at ttie end of that term the 1800,000 
bondji must be met. The property la

Turkish tltlogates announced that fre.sli 
instructions liad been dispatched from 
Constantinople by special courier, there- 
fore adjournment until Saturday was 
taken, by which time the ^instructioiia 
sliould roach London. It was said to- 
night th«t Turkey is empowering here 
diilegati;B to proceed witli the negotia- 
tions wall the jreeks as well as the 
Balkan delegates. if so, the decision 
tends towards peace, as there bus btsen 
a suspicion that tlie Turks were man- 
oeu\'erlng for time, that they might 
strengtlian their army. The Conference 
after tlie first week's work, is in exact- 
ly tlio same position as the Portsmouth 
Conference was at the end yf the flist 
week. The different jiarties are daily 
feeling the ground before striking a de- 
cisive blow. 

After the sitting today some of the 
IJalkan delegates expressed disgust at 
the way artairs are dragging, whiie five 
armies and three besieged towns were 
enduring all tne sufferings of war and 
the respective countries were the prey 
of misery and deatli.

Rev. the Dean of Columbia 

In the cbRlr, at which the following 
suggestions made by the committee ap- 
pointed at the Easter Vestry meeting to 
consider the best site for the new 
cathedrsl were adopted: 

"1. That this vestry accepts the advice 
tendered by the committee — namely that 
Bishopsclose Is the best site for the 
new cathedral." 

"That the present site be not sold for 
at least five years." 

The flrst reeiolutlon was moved by 
Mr. Percy Wollaston and seconded by 
Mr. E. B. Taylor, and the second was 
mcrved by Mr. F. BurrP.l and seconded by 
Mr. J. Harvey. Both were passed 
unanimously, and the matter can now 
be relrarded as closed, ao faj" as 
election of a site Is concerned. 

There \n a revival of the report tluit 
the Orand Trunk Pacllic Railway Com-

been notillcd that hereafter tliey will be 
on a monthly basis, terminable <it two

Tiiat the --ompany lias made up it.s 
min-d that tiie development of the Pa- 
cidr Coast trade Is one of the pressing 
Issues before the transportation men of

first week in ;lnnuary.

These figures will proye the necessity 
of the Grand Trunk system getting a

of future developments of the harbor of

awake to the possibilities which It ■will 
have to confront when Its rivals, the 
Canadian Northern Pacific aft<l the

There la excellent reason to believe 
tbat the British Columbia representa-

OTTA'W'A. Dec. 19.— The civil Bcrvlcu 
nt the capital Is agog over the report 
of 81r George Murray on the conditions 
of public service in the Dominion, some 
of his recommendations being gratifying 
to the civil servants. One Is the Justlf 1- 
cAtlon of the oft-repeated complaint that 
officers or employes df different depart- 
ment« whose work Is wholly elmllar are 
paid salaries that are widely varied. 
Another Is the fact that promotions fre- 
quently have been based on political 
or other Influence rather than merit. 
The third division,- most of whose mem- 
bers for years have been at a maximum 
of 11200 and unable to go higher with- 
out passing an acadebalc examination, 
are especially pleased over the declara- 
tlpn that this te«t should not apply and 
that the maximum should be Increased 
to $1600 or $1800. . 

Commenting on the report. The Even- 
ing CltUen aaya: 

"The Government since coming Into 
office, has bad, in mind extensive civil 
service reforms. Including bringing the 
outBlde aarvlce under a commleslon and 
nttering conditions ao as to relieve 
themselves of muph routine. Tha re-

day night was discovered yesterday 
morning. The robbers had tried to force 
the rear door leading from an alley at 
the l)ack of the building into the bank- 
ing room. 

I )r. MciCoown, velerinary, who has 
offices at tlie rear, was passing along 
the passageway when he noticed that 
the screws in the lock of the door lead- 
ing into the bank had been loosened and 
were jirojecting almost their entire 
length. Rvldently the would-be robbers 
had started to remove the locic and had 
either been interrupted r)r had Intended 
to leave the lock as V)r. McKeown found 
it and, later in the evening, return, when 
(he chances of interruption would have 
been practially nil. Once inside the 
banking premises, with a watcher out- 
side to give the alarm cf the approach 
of any wayfarer, the robbers would 
have had perhaps sufficlont time to 
make an attempt upon the safb.

now in the city a number of crooks who

pliases of tlie lOasteni (luention whlcii 
the defeat ot the .Sultan's army will

For iliirty years the United Kingdoiii

I-"or thirty years the efforts of the Brit- 
ish Resident-General to reform and Im-

by certain International agreemenl.i, 
known as the Capitulations, and by tiie 
existence of the mixed tribunals. 

The extincti-on of the Turk In Europe 
has com,pIetely altered the position of 
TCgypt towards him. A suzerain power, 
drawing tribute from another power, 
does not draw that tribute nomin«ll\'. 
for nothing. The nominal return for tlio 
Ksyptiati tribute is the defence of Kgypt.

The onl.» nation which could po.s-

would be the Germans, who might i.da in

The conference was held In the execu-

for the marketing of produce. It in 
urged that the Provincial (>overnm«nt

"The Committee notes with regret the

a long time, he said, that In the interest 
of the country generally more settlers 
were urgently needed upon the land. 
How much had been accomplished by 
this Oovornmont In tlie public interest 
was readily acknowledged, and he lioped 
that the suggestions offered an a result 
of the Commliteo's inciuirlos would be

In going oven further in the oncourage-

"On previous oocasions when you have 
received deputations from the Vancou- 
vor Board of Trade on the Hubject of 
land Hetllenient," .said Mr. Stone, taking 
up the pre-uentation of the case in ciiief 
for tho visitors, "those deputations real- 
ized that their suggestion.', and repre- 
sentations were ^omowhat •weakened 
by the want of more definite knowledge 
on the subject. For this rea.son, and 
realizing the groat Importanco of the 
s u bj ec L. ^llifi__JZrfisM£nl^.81!<l- t'f'y "i- Ll .ill 
Marcli last appointed a committee to 
thorouglily investigate the <iuestion In 
Its entirety. This Committee ha.v held 
meetings periodically since that date, 
gathering information, and was kindly 
aided by your Government permitting 
the Deputy Minister of Lands and Agri- 
culture to assist in arriving at facts 
concerning tho lands of this Province. 
You may note that on this (.'ommlttee roal 
estate interests and also that of lumber- 
ing are well represented, in order that 
its findings should not be biased. At 
the time that our investigations were 
initiated we worn not aware that yo>ir 
Government contemplated appointing a 
Royal Commission on Agriculture, and 
after completing its work and cou.-iide--- 
Ing the urgency of the ijuestion it was 
decided to present to your (.Joverimient 
directly the results arrived at. In doing 
so we wish to assure you of our earnest 
wish to assist, and if I may Bay .so, 10 
strengthen if possible your bauds in ile- 
vistng a means tt) overcome tho deplor-

Ohancas Suffgrestad 

"A copy of iheso lo.solutiun.s which we 
wish to present for your careful consi- 
deration has been already laid before 
you, many of which are fully in accord 
with tiie policy you have adopted. But 
there are two great changes that we are 
liere to particularly and earnestly urge 
upon you, and to which I would more 
particularly invite your attention: One 
Is the first clavu-^e, which recommends 
that all agricultural land.s be with- 
drawn from ."lale axccr>t und.-M- tiinding 
impi'ovenienl and settlement conditions, 
and the other is covoreil by clauses !' 
and 10. The necessity of Homotlilng be- 
ing done and done nuickly to encourage 
settlement is too well known and e.<- 
hausled a subject to need dwelling upon. 
1 would, therefore, pa.s.s to tlio cause." 
which must no found and understood be 
fore a remedy can be suggested atul ai)- 
plied. We therefore vont\ire to attribute 
this lack of farm tlevelopmeut to the 
three following causes: (ll land si>ecu- 
nlllon: (2l tho almost insurmountable 
diflcultios to the individual farmer in 
ciearliig, draining or otherwise starling 
or c.vtending farming operations, and ( li) 
tho general need of transi>ortatlon fa- 
cilities for rtiachlng a market loi' pro- 

Xiand Bpaoalatlon 

•As regards that of land speculation, 
a few minutes' walk around real estate 
centres, or talk with real cHtttle men, 
will convince you, If con\ictlon is need- 
ed, of the enormous nuantity of agrii>iil- 
tural land in the vicinity of towns.- ar 
possible towiis, of harbors or posslWo. 
harbors, in tiic track of raiUvayti or pos- 
sible railways, and therefore the most 
desirable lands for agriculture, have 
boon taken out of the farming level and 
raised to the dignity of lots and lilgb- 
prlcod acreage. The farmer, tired of 
Btruggllng with his Htump-eovered lands, 
his want of wharf accommodation or of | 
facilities of transportation to enable.,ljUji;;;j 
to reach a market. Is inverting his atte«*^ 
Hon to the real estate market and to the 
disposal of his holdings. Lands in the 
path or tlio prol)able path of the I'aelfic 
(7reat l<;a«torn Itailway, which Is the 
first railway ever built or coniervipiaiec! 
In the Interest of the commerce of Brit- 
ish Columbia arc being eagerly secured 
for speculative purposes, to ti;a de'trl- 
menl of a land settlement policy, and if 
persisted In will considerably diminish 
the benefits which we should rtorlve 
from that Oovernmont-asBlsted railway; 
In any case throughout the first five 
hundred miles of that railway north 
from Newpnr* tboe* )>• liardly an acre 
loft for pre-emption. DesiraUle lands 
rear the coast are also b«lng socurad in 
considerable blocks, and th« t>utlook for 
the pre-eniptor sosms to be more hope- 
loss and romoto through this losa of 
aovnrnment control of the choicest 
known lands near to transportation." 

XsUl M VM-anyttoas 

In rosponse to an tnterjactad qusti- 
tlon from the Prime Mtnlster, Mr. Stons 
Intimated that In the opinion of itm 
Committee many ploeos of deairmblo laoid 
wero hold as |>rs-«mptloiM whiob mjtH 

tha possaaaor of propartjr of one kind or 
anotta^or, and if somoons came alons 
who offarod him a price conUlnlng a 
fair marcin of profit, ho was Incllnod to 
sell. Ho would not bo surprised If even 
Mr. Stona would take advantage of an 
oppoetunlty to turn over a property of 
which he was owner a,t a profit. 
Xnspootoc of momastoads 

Mr. Stone admitted the soft Impeach- 
ment, and the Premier continued that 
tlie adoption of such a suggestion as 
hud been put forward would provoke a 
storm of protest Inciden'^ally he could 
Inform those present that it was Hon. 
Mr. Boss' Intention shortly lo appoint 
an Inspector of Homesteads, tlie work 
of the various government agents who 
had heretofore looked after such mat- 
ters having grown so that the creation 
of a special officer for the work had 
l-Kecoine Imperative. The Government 
was doing what it could to see that 
pre-emption reiiulremenls were adiiered 
to, but at the same time it was its 
policy not to bo too harsh upon the pre- 
emptor. If it erred in its policy toward 
him, it erred on the generous aide. 
Every endeavor would be put fortti to 
protect tho pre-ernptlon obligations 
from abuse, but it would be a widely 
diffeiient thing to come along with any 
government official who coyld say to a 
man wlio liad taken up land, "you are 
not a pre-emi)tor — you're a speculator. " 

In Illustration of his position, Mr. 
Stone told of an advertisement bearing 
no naine, appearing tn ilie Vancouver 
paperw, in which persons were Invited, 
if tliey wislied to know how to get 
possession of Government lands, to call 
at the unnamed advertiser's room and 
be instriicted.

"Tliat was aonictiiing ot a left-handed 
compllmeut to the people of Vancouver." 

"oTi:»erV'ea~nre~nr8r Mittwrer. '■ ""Anyon ^ 

can »«o by the statutes Just liow to oh- 
taln possession"^ of Oovernment lands by 
complying with the requirements laid 
down in connection with tlic taking u)i 
of unalienated lands of the Crown." 

A.-.! to the abuse of pre-emption pri\- 
ileges, the President of the Council hu'l 
'also a word to offer. 

"Anyone finding that pre-cnii)tion 
conditions aie not being fully lived up 
to," said Hun. Mr. McPhiUlps, "may by 
the law as It is at present, secure can- 
cellation of such pre-emption, and lie 
then has first call for the lan<I affected. 
A large number, 1 know througli th • 
practice of my profession, take 
l;ige of this condition, and the ojn'or- 
tunity given the man who sees condi- 
tions not compiled with furnishes a 
very good check upon liotitious pre- 
I mptor,«<." 

Only One Remedy 

"Lands for iire-cmpli'm." said Mi". 
.s;fone, continuing iiis urgument in cliicf, 
"uitli slight exceptions are without 
lirldges. roads or transportation fm-il- 
Itles. and therefore lack those essen- 
tials without wldcli farming cannot be 
.'iiicoessfully urosecuted. So to Iwnd 
.«;;ie(nlatii>n miiy attriluited In part 
tlie farmer's lack of energy, the reduc- 
tion i:if acrciige uiiiltr c\iltivat!on, and 
the gradual allenulion from Crovern- 
ment control of the most desirable agri- 
cultural lands we have. The (!oniinitiep 
sees only one remedy, tliat recom- 
mended by Clause 1. 

"Now, ■ sir," ho (■cinlinued. '•regarding 
the difficulties of land clearing arid the 
a'osencp of transportation facilities, it 
Is abundantly evident that the expense, 
dt-lay and iBborion.K work of clearing 
imd prepariiig iMnds for farming debar 
any settler of nioderiitc mean:! from 
making a li\ini; liv taking ui> tlml.ered 
pre-emptions in Ihi.s Provini'e. It Is 
furtiier evident that oven with a cleared 
farm a fair pro»*pei't of return for lal>or 
e.xijpnded Is ImiKJssltdc without not only 
good n'Hiu roH<ls, but aliao reasonable 
transportation facUit'.eH to reach a mar- 
ket. Settlers iti the CarllJOo, Chtlcotin, 
Siiunmish, Pemberton Meadows and 
Fraser Vallf'j-. even at Langley, bear 
testimony to tlicsc facta. The liigti 
wages to be obtained in the cities, and 
the scarcity of cheap fiirin labor have 
! of rccerit years l"rtte,nHlficU thtfr j*o"U'- 
tlon.'i. and the committee find that little 
hoi)e is left for the reasonably qulek 
extension of the fiirming industry v.itli- 
out direct government assistance, liotli 
to the farmer to extend his acrciigc anil 
to the spttler to enable him to sttirt

Mrs. Longfleld and Mrs. Tlcknor, of the 
Ladles' Musical Club, delighted all with 
their rendering of •■Goo<l King Wences-

two of her sweetest songs. The gymna- 
sium was de<:orated effectively with 
wreaths of evergreens, holly and crim- 
son bells; and the room. flUed with 
happy glrl-s, presented a scene to delight 
the heart of all chlld-lovera. 

Mrs. Day. the regent of the Corona-

Day Informed the m-embers had been 
prepared at .Mrs. Hanlngton's augges-

ters throughout Canada, 

The Bishop of Columbia talked to the 
girls in a very entertaining and Inter- 
esting way of Christmas customs in 
Servia, drawing out their sympathy to 
the Uttle ones who would spend a aad 
Christmas with fathers, brothers and 
uncles away from home, but expressing 
th€ hope" that the war would soon be

The Dominion Minister of Agriculture 
has Just Issued a Guide to the Dominion 
experimental farms throughout the con-

purpo««« for which they are k^t up. 
and fumlsheB a short review of the 
work being carried on at each— with 
plans of bulldlnga and plots. In this 
Province the original farm was estab- 
lished at Affa«8l« m 1889, but, how 
fifty-two acres have also been obtained 
at Invermere. which will bo devoted to 
fruit growing, and a third atAtlon at 
Thoma* Crossing, on the Sa&nlch Penin- 
sula. In addition the problems ot a 
semi-arid district are being studied at 
Kamloopa. and on his farm at Salmon 
Arm. Mr. T. A. Sharpe Is testing varie- 
ties of fruit for the Dominion Depart- 
ment of Agriculture. 

At Agaaslt some 200 acre« of land 
have been brought under cultivation; 
fruit, vesetablee and flowering trees 
and shrubs and flowers all receive at- 
tention, and during the last two years 
an effort tia« been made to build up a 
herd of hlffh-produclng dairy cattle of 
the Holsteln breed. Horses, sheep (Dor- 
set Horn), awlne (Improved Yorkshires 
and Berkshlres) are also kept, and ex- 
tensive experimental work is carried on 
among dlfferenf breeds of poultry. The 
Increase In number of the llveatoclt kept 
and the cbange in the Byatem of farm- 
ing pursued, win permit of more atten- 
tion being paid to rotations and cultural 

The Guide Is lU««trat«d by excellent

tioned a family (,-ould live Just as con- 
veniently at. .■5.iy, Beecher Bay or the 
north end of the Saanlch Penlni'ula, on 
the Uplands or 5n Esquimau. TIiiK i.s 
n great and Important fact. It Ih one 
that can bn made to promote the realiz- 
ation of a Greater Victoria on a far 
grander .scale than any one would have 
dared to dream of five years ago. 

The victoria of 'the near future > nn 
be made to emlirace all the area lyiiiK 
between Sookc and Satellite Chann.;-!, 
whlclKls the W!iter\va>- h Hilinu into 
Saanlch Inlet. "When we say a. Greater 
Victoria we do not now mean the ex- 
pression in a municipal' sense- ' What we 
do mean is a Local Improvement Dis- 
trict under a central governing body, 
which shall be charged with the duty of 
turning to aceount.the matchless oppor- 
tunity within ttie area mentioned of 
creating a residential centre tiiat will 
be the admiration of tlio world. The 
thing can easily bo done. It is a mcra 
matter of co-operation and the working 
out of <l'.'tail8. Finan'-iiilly, it is t-ini- 
plicity Itself. We shall not go Into do- 
taihs Just now. because these have to be 
thought out. AV<? sliall not cven/und.r- 
take to say tliat rthare should be o))l\. 
one governing body for the whole arva 
for the mentioned. We Bhiill 
only la.v befor. the public thL' oulllneK 
of the 'jiroposiil. 

■Vyhat we liave In mind primarily is u 
broad, a.><pbaKfd road, extendin.!? from 
V'lctorla around the Saanicii Peninsula 
and also around the Sooke and Mctcho- 
Ein districts; not a shore line uccex- 
farlly, and. indeed, preferably not a 
shore lino, where it can be avoided, but 
a road so located as to iidrult of the 
erection of residences on both sides. 
This road should be Ughled for its entlfe 
length,' and as Car as i)0.s.s',ble be pro- 
vided with water mains. Tue road would 
bo approximately elglity miles long, 
which would miian a residential front- 
ag-e upon. It of at lea.«it 100 miles. Al- 
lowing an average frontage for each 
residential lot of 2<I0 feet, we would tliUs 
have room for approximately 3B00 sub- 
urban homes, none of them at an In- 
convenient distance from the centre of 
this city. Such lvomc»:te« along such a 
highway would meet with a ready sale. 
We believe the demand for them would 
hn phenomenal, and it is obvious that 
the purchasers would have to yay ;'or 
the road and -the otltsiv- IWJpjoKemenrai 
if the work were done, oh the locol im- 
provement plan. Tlilri may .seem like a 
formidable under taWng; but it is not, 
when on^ tlie way of doing it has beru 
thought out. Financially it is not rela- 
tively as serious e problem a* the pav- 
ing contractH that have been let in Vic- 
toria during tlie past year or two. Thi.3 
la the basic feature of tlio proposal. 
I.<atenal roads would follow as a matter 
of course. 

Within the area whlcK such a road 
would make aiccssible fur suburban 
re«ldeiitial purposes there are to be 
foun<5 condltlon.s closely approaching 
tho ideal from the rrsldentlal point of 
view. There Is a minimum of rainfall 
and a maximum of scenery. Just let 
your mind's eyo sweep alongr the prn- 
)>oscd highway. Leaving Victoria, you 
pans alonir the .eastern aide of Saanlch

through the city and out around the 
head of Ksqulmalt Harbor, and then 
you have an inland ride until you draw 
pear Kooke. iff^eh you skirt the harbor 
of that name,' and the road will lead you 
on until yo\' can see out the Strait, 
past and perhaps oven to the ocean It- 
self. On your homeward ride you will 
have a. succession of most charming 
views over lond and water, beautiful 
little bays and charming little valleys, 
with every now and then the peaks of 
the Olympli'.s, now seemingly almost 
within reach, towering before you. Tlien 
>ou will at every few miles look out 
o\>'V the splendid sheet of water wh^i 
lie.s in front of Victoria, the eastern pnd 
of which la so far nvrtny that when Cap- 
tain Meares first looked upon it, a cen- 
tury and a quarter ago, he thouglit it 
imi-st reach through to the Atlaritie and 
l>e the long-vsought route from Europe to 
the Indies. They you swing around 
l-:siin!iiialt atvali! ;nul back to tpwn after 
a ride, the equal of which can hardly 
bo found anywhere Jn the world and .>ne 
that can certainly be siirpassed liow: i. 

Now cannot you easily call to mind, 
from what you yourself know of the 
route we have covered In Imaginatlpn. 
scores of places wh«re you could make 
a charming home? Of course you can. 
Thfin thinl L what »t wUlnbttltlta 

when there ir. u ttne asphalted road, 
with cluster lights along It at night 
and water mains and telephones avail- 
able. Are we not right when we soy 
that the whole double circuit would he 
a series of charming subur'oin iioimsV 
iteflect upon what a constant source of 
pleasure such tt" roadway, flanked by 
such homes would be to the people for- 
tunate to live in in Uif 
Greater Victoria. Think of how it 

would 'add to -the attrtrrtiveness of the 
city in the eyes of visitors. Here and 

there would be slopping places, wher*' 

those who wi.shed could rest awhile for 

r.-freshments. i>n the shuvs in Ih- 

more "seltered .spot.s would be seaside 

hotel.s with boating places close at 

iian.i. The vholej hundred square miles 

would become a great pleasure ground, 

and the more than a hundred miles of 

meandering coast-line would lie fringed 

witli l>eautiful I'.omes-in luelj gardens). 

The above Is no fancy piriure. We 
can make it real if w.e only make u). 
our minds to do so. It will pay and 
pay handsomely. It will give us the 
undisputed prt inlersliiii among all Fa - 
cific resorts, for it cannot be du- 
plicated. It, would nuan that, within 
t"ti years from the time the road w.n.s 
made and the other faclli tie.'? were In- 
.italled. We would have a population of 
at ieust iialf a million people within 
the area described, a i>ojuil,itinn of a.s 
great average wealth as could be found 
in any similar area in America. 

Such is a stm[de otitline of what we 
propose the people of Victoria and vicin- 
ity shall .Set tlieins*-lves (It oner to ae- We have not overstated tlie 
case in tlie sllRhtest particular. This

gra,ndeus or beauty of other places: but

road there are views that cannot be 
sui-passed. They are , on so grand a 
scale that photography cannot do them 
justice and hence only some of the 
smaller ones are llk<?ly ever to he seen 
in print. Kve.n a year ago wf would 
hardly have ventured to suggest ao ex- 
tensive a project for the consideration 
of this community; but nothing la too 
formidable, to be taken in hand now. We 
all appreciate the potentlalltieH of the 
Greater Victoria now, but we have only 
lately learned to do so. Therefore w 
place tlie above suggestion before the 
people with every eonfldence that it will 
be acted upon.

is not likely to be much difference in

Caution to XiawMli Owners 

sir. — Might this letter be Inserted, in 
jour valuable paper, that your stib- 
K<'r!berB, who are possessors of launches 
and yachts, may be maxle acquainted 
Willi possible proximity of thieves. 
The.iO latter (such In my experience) lie 
low in unfreiiuented baya or creeks and 
at a favorable moment to themselves, 
boarii your launch, remove locks, bolts 
and nuts, etc. Having obtained en- 
' ranee they make a general sweep of 
the launch outfit; dynamo accumulators 
and searchlights are dl.saembled and re- 
moved; prl.smatlrc field-glasses vanish, 
and not even are hip gumboots exempt 
from the pilferage. Having lost rau'-h 
to therse same tiiieves, I intimate to 
owners to look well to their properiv. 
especially dark, windy rights, when 
superadded noises are not likelj" to I e 
ol>se)-ved by those living liui a '<w 
yards away. 

I liuve .bKii xUen to understand, .n- 
siiiance llahlllty does not cover engine 
loss, cUetric plant or the accessories ne- 
c.'>-sary to a launch, therefore. It be- 
hoovf.-< Hint all launch owners sh'U'd 
.scrutinize well, all strange craft com- 
ing to rest In and around tlielr vicinity. 
Particularly If the same do not disclose 
their Identity: after which scrutiny, wr 
may, If occasion arises, recognize them 

We people on the Islands require our 
launch and its outfit as an essential fac- 
tor to our convenience, welfare and 
happiness. Then let all ov.'nera help 
each other by observing well what 
strangers we have In our outlying bays 
and creeks. 

Personally I have a horror of sail- 
ttafetii'WnK"aliXTHari^ pbwer. The i^easoln'^ 
of the horror may yet be shown. Bye- 
the-bye! Cruisers note that the Eastern 
buoy at the entrance to the Canal, 
Bedwell Harbor, has gone adr;n. Also 
that a rock as pointed out by 
Mr. Schrelber, becomes uncovered at 
very low tide. This rock Is near Drew 
Rock, which latter Is noted on the chart.

'Wreck of the Nidge 

.'^Ir. — On the night of December 15 the 
City Police Station received, at 11:30, 
a tclei)hone from Sergt. Giller, 
Work Point Barrack.s, stating that a 
rocket had been sent up from some ves- 
sel evidently in dl.s trews off Macaula;- 

Jailer Brogan Immodiately se^t a rush 
telephone message to Capt. Stratford of - 
the S. S. Salvor, w.ho promised to In- 
vestigate the report. Intiulries were 
also made at the Outer Wharf, who re- 
ported "nothing known." 

.\nother urgent message was received 
from some unl\nown person at 11:7)0 
p. m. that a small steamer was beln.'< 
waslied ashore off Macaulay Point and 
it was feared that some persons were 
being drowned, and asking for asslst- 
ancp as quickly as possible. 

The patrol wagon was Immediately 
manned by Sergt. Clay«rdis and (,"on- 
sta.ble Webb, off duty, and Sergt. Har- 
per, lirlver Smith and Constable Foster, 
on duty. The patrol was rushed to 
Work Polni, where they picked up a 
soldier to show the way and open gat<^s 
on the roadway to the scene of the 
wreck. Immediately below Macaulay 

The mate had been washed overboard 
. .;d luana.ged, after heroic exertions to 
1 ai-li the shore and gave the alarm at 
iiie fort. 

It was Impossible to get the patrol 
near" the wreck, so as to make use of 
her lights. .\ small line was, however, 
.tfter severe exertion. pa.«.sed astiore, by 
wld.-h Sergt. Clayards and Constable 
I'oster managed to reach the .Xldge and 
sueeped(-d in gaining tlie deck. Foster 
iinmediately secure<l a baby and- again, 
Idimging in. succfveded in regaining tl.e 
shore with his precious charge; Cla.vards 
Immediately following with the second 
child and Immediately returned and 
broii.icht the mother safely ashore. Con- 
stables Smith and Webb gallantly as- 
sisted in the work of re.«>cue, and tl.ough 
in a very critical position, being swept 
off their feet repeatedly, stuck man- 
fully to their difficult and exceedingly 
dangerous task until every one on board 
•sjifuly reached the' shore'. Sergeant Har- 
per also did splendid work in assisting 
those brought ashore and with the other 
orrieers succes.sf ully and promptly ren- 
dered first aid to the various badly cut

T believe this is one of the very finest

that the citizens of Victoria generally

have placed such a remarkable example 
of 'Sheer grit and nplendid daring, for

Attorney General Hughes: "The Idea 
seems to be much clouded. What is the

Kosho vs. .ShutUewortli: ,\clion on a 
building contract to recover i'M9 bal- 
ance due, and som« $600 odd for extra.s. 
Under tlie contract there was a provi- 
sion that any dls|)ute between the own- 
er nnri the contractor as to extras, 
should be referred to nrhltation, one ar- 
bitator to be cho.^l•^ by t'ach of the 
parties and the tiilrd arbitrator by the 
two 80 chosen. A dl.spute arose, hut 
Instead f)i! ''followinsf the terms of the 
contract, the r'artie.i submitted the mat- 
ter to two arbitrators. Under this sub- 
mission the bill of extras was allowed 
at $407 instead of about »fiOO. Plalntltr 
would not abide hy the award and com- 
menced action. The sub-contra(;torji 
placed liens on the building which had 
to be discharged by th<' owner, and It 
was contended on behalf of the plaintiff 
that the whole antount due under tl.t» 
contract and for extras had been paid; 
further that plaintiff was entitled to a 
certain allr>wance for defective work. 

The learned Judge found that the con- 
tractor had been paid In full, and also 
that the plaintiff was entitled to $10 

C. E. Klllott. for plaintiff: Maclean, 
K. C. for defendant. 

B. N. A. Agency, f^td. vs. Pli*r Island 
Syndicate; This Is an Int«r^leader Issue 
to decide the owner.'^hip of a power 
boat and engine delivered over to tin 
plaintiffs by the defendants In payment 
Of a debt at a time when it is alleged 
the defendants were in n state of tnsol- 
V'ency. As regards the engine 1 think It 
Is clear that plaintiffs must succeed a.<» 
the def'.'ndant.f never acquired any title 
to It. 

The evidence satisfies me that plain- 
tiffs have ample assets lo cover their 
liabilities: the evidence of Mr. I.lneham 
la uncontradicted, but Mr. Robertson 
urges that on the authority of Warnnck 
va. Kloppfer (1887) 14 Ont. 288, fafflrm- 
ed 18 8. C. n.. 701) the plaintiff here 
must he deemed Insolvent, on th« 
ground, T take It, th«t they have had 
dlfllcnlty In raising money and have al- 
lowed Judgments to go Mtalnat them. 
T do not think that case goen any fur- 
ther than the heiidnotc (which la taken 
almost verbatim from Chancellor Boyd'a 
Judgment.) There the debtor's aaaeta If 
aold were Inauftlclent to cover his 11a- 
bllitlea — here I think they are more 
than aufflclent. 

The laaua must be decided In favor 
of the plaintiffs with eoata.

advanced, and the cards sent out to

Government establishing a system of 
old age pensions on the reme lines as 
in New Zealand in their list of ques- 
tions to wltnesMi's. Mr. Burnham feels 
that such a commission would be more 
likoly to get into close touch with the 
working people than any parliamentary 
committee of the House of Commons, 
and he will write to the Chairman of 
the I.Aboi- Commission to that effect.

ol" the investigation which the Special 
Council Committee held yesterday into 
the protcKt of Mos.srs. K. G. Prior & 
Company against certain Htatements 
made by Alderman Stewart, it wa.s found 
that the whole trouble arose over a mis- 
under.standing. A clerk in the employ 
of the firm showed the purchasing agent 
of the city some cart» valued at $60, 
which the city official understood could 
be secured for $.'">0. The committee, com- 
poHed of .\ldermen Stewart, Okell and

so report to the Council. City Purcha.s-

Those in Charge of the Kooky .IConn- 

tain's Beserve Are to Have Better 

rocillties In 7utare 

During the coming winter the offi- 
cers in charge of the Brazeau and 
Alhalmska divisions of the Rocky 
Mountains Forest Reserve propose to 
mukf "administrative site" surveys at 
different points on the reserves. Upon 
these sltcK It is propo.sed to erect ran- 
ger and lookout stations which will he 
no further apart than one day's trip by 
pack-train, along the primary trail sys- 
tem of the Brazeau Reserve. It is the 
Intention to erect, ttiia winter, at least 
three or four log cabins for the ran- 
gers. A telephone -system is also being 
planned whereby these ranger stations 
will be connected by telephone to the 
forest supervisor's office. This office 
Is centrally located and telephone lines 
will run from it In all directions, much 
in the manner of the spoken of a wheel 
With the central office as the hub. This 
region Is one of the richest coal regions 
in Canada and the future development 
of these coal fields amazing. 
A number of large coal mihes are al- 
ready In operati'on. and. with the com- 
pletion of the branches of the G.T.P. 
railway now under construction, will 
be shipping thousands of tons dally. 

With the future development of this 
country, the timber must be preserved. 
This region has once been forested with 
very valuable timber, which has largely 
been destroyed by fires in the past 
There Is still an ahundnnt supply of 
mine-prop timber, however, and the 
whole rogkm is green witli young lodge- 
pole pine from ten to thirty years In 
age. If preserved from fire this will 
be, an Invaluable asset to the country, 
both for economic uses and as protec- 
tion to the head-waters of all the riv- 
ers which rise In the foothills of the 
eastern slope.

It has been suj^gesled 
that tlie rea.son for the ub- 
.sence of facilities for dry 
dockint;- large ves.sels in our 
harbor, is due to the fact 
lliat the .noiioy for l/iiilding 
-,ucli flocks would have to be 
raised upon 3!/^, per cent 
I)ond3, with only the inter- 
est guaranteed. W'e do not 
see why an investment of 
this sort should not appeal to 
certain grades of investors, 

but probably the reason is 
that the city -.t the present 
lin'.'.; cffers such undeniable 
iiKlurements for the placing 
of caijitul in sound and pro- 
gressiv'.; real estate holdings, 
that investors will not be 

content with a small return

ill the .lordan lllvar »ectlon on Tues- 
day niglit, tlurinK Hie course of which 
ligJitnlriK struck the plant of the Van- 
couver Inland Power Company, the sup- 
Iily of power from that source was 
completely cut off, and it will, It \b 
o.^fiJticied, be several days bufore even 
one of the two units Installed there 1» 
in vvorkinjj condition. iOach unit is 
e<iuipped with a huK« jfenerator, and 
both generators are affected. One is 
completely burned out ana will be u.^^e- 
less for a month. The other was only 
partially affected. Two of the com- 
pany's experts here are et the plant 
making reiiairs and three from Van- 
couver will arrive this morning. 

Despite this groat handlcai) — u re- 
duction in the available power .supply 
of 12,000 horse-power — the company 
kept its service in operation yesterday 
by means of the auxilliary plants. The 
now Brentwood Bay plant, recentl.y 
siartod. Is supplying 6,000 horse-power 
and Goldstream slighilT over 2,00i) 
I horse-powar, while the gtore Street

.ibout l.TiOO horse-power.

for guarding against damtige or In- 
torrupllon in such cases, but thfe 
fDri-u of the bolt which struck the 
plant was such tliat tliese precautions 
were practically useless. 

The scene at the site of the plant 
when the lighiiilng struck was beyond 
description. For two liours before, the 
heavens had been cvntiniially lighted 
liy the brilliant flashes, and the crash 
lit' thunder was terrific. Whether the 
lightning struck the transmission wires 
jtiwt outsiiie the buildihg or entered 
through the opon windows is nrt 
known, Ijui a poal of thunder louder 
than the rest was iiiiniediately followed 
by a cjush which almost deafened the 
iiiun working in the plant. It seemed 
to thorn as though every bit of metal 
in the place was spouting flame, the 
inectiines being outlined in dar.zling 
light. Absolute blackness followed, and 
it was some ••"'•onds before the em- 
ployees realized that the machinery had 
ceased operating. Information of the 
occurrence was immediately telephoned 
into the city, where the .sudden cutting 
off of the power had already informed 
people a breakdown ha.i occurred. A 
cursory e.x«minati6n led to the belief 
that repairs could bo affected within 
ten bourse, but a more detailed ex- 
amination showed that serious damage 
had been done. 

T&klngr Ho Chance* 
Whil?. the company has svifficiiMit 
power lo operate the city services, im 
chances will be taken. The work 
tr.ilns of the company liuve lieen 
taken off the system and other 
change.H made to provide for a 
maximum, power between the hours of 
4 and 7 o'clock, when the peak load is 
the heaviest of the day, ajj not only 
has the tramway sfervlce to be supplied, 
but the lighting facilities are taxed to 
their utmost at that time and the de- 
mand for power for Industrial iiur- 
poses an-d for elevators, etc., has not 
jet oeased for the day. 

In addition to the damage done to 
the company's plant at Jonlan Ki\er, 
a number of tents in logging camps 
were blown down, and many trees, 
which have for years stood the worst 
storms, were levelled.

Nearly all purported to have been mud«

the necessary touch of genuineness to 
Induce the merchant to cash it. Victoria

Why should 8ch:>ol ohlldren learn 

'.(••.■■'•■ouH at liodic? 'IMiat iH a qiiesilon 
which tB being dlsc-uBHed vigorously in 
the Unltert States papers In these clos- 
ing days of the year. The Ladles' Home 
Journal takes It for granted that the 
parents of the children are against 
home Htiidy and calls upon th-em to de- 
clare a strike and forbid any study 
after school. As a matter of fiift, 
there are a great many parents who 
do not think their children are sludy- 
InR- unless they see them poring over 
Ihclr books at nlRht. The most Intclll- 
Iffnt teacliors know thiit until pupils 
have been taught to study much of the 
time they spend ov*r their books out of 
school hours is worse than wustrd. 
SDtrsc of these spend part of the school 
time In teuchlnB their puplLs how fo 
l.-arii the lessons RKslRned for next day. 
There is, of course, the exccplloiial 
father or mother who has both llie time 
and the ability, to really help th* lit- 
tle student. But too nftrn the would- 
b-.' helper renlly doe.s the work for ilie 
cliild, Which It! tiulie a different m.Tt- 
ter. On the parent's side there Is the 
firfrument arrainst working overtime. 
Why should ten year old Mary or Jack 
spend the evening hours studying while 
tlie father loaves hl.s work in the office 
and <'nj-i\s himself.' In answer the 
tfii.'her i^ays that it is impossible to 
leave time for study In the five or six 
hours the child spends In l"

principals who have found that home 
study Is, for young children, a iwafltcof 
lime. The letters will be read with In- 
terest by both parents and teachers.

"In a million liome.« all "ver the 
country there is acted ni«liiiy the com- 
edy of fathers and mothersi tcachlns 
the children their lessons, with the 
teacher.s playins the detective the next 
morninK to .see how well the parents 
have done the work of Instruction. The 
ordinary Interests at the h6me are su- 
pirsedvd, young children are kept up 
nights, and, perhaps worst of nil, t^ 
ihlldron In the schools are kept pSr- 
rotinK' off text-books v.-lthout ever 
learning- Ikiw to K" t') the heart of the 
lesHon. In this home study everything 
flattens nut into a dead lev«l of Hst- 
lr;i."nc»s. The child In unfortunate cir- 
cumstances loses interest, fall^^, accpt.'' 
failure as his lot in lif<\ and leaves 
school as .soon as possible. The child 
whose parents dan help in the prepara- 
tion of lessons'' Is coddled nlon.if from 
day to day without learning the mO"5t 
important lesson the school should 
te.ich — namely, how to study. 

"U is perfectly true that the school 
can't do all that is expfrted of U with- 
in the present hours. It is equally true 
thai Inme study has b<'i'on!.' a nnlsant-c 
In tb.' children. The ..nly way out Is 
to give children more time In school 
with the teachers to teach them." 

.\ t'^acher who has broken throuch 
tlic tradition of the nsslgnmcnl of les- 
sons writes: 

"V-^r years In my fcbool no chlUl li.i.i 
b". n iicrmltted to take home test-hook.", 
except In tire hl«hesi two grade.", with- 
out permission. Where parents asked 
the reason 1 showed them that a chlUI 
would get more out 'of his school-book < 
if he had them fresh In the regular 
course In school hours thnn If he look 
the attractiveness out of them by hasty 
and unmethodical use of tlK'm at home. 
1 also .«howed the parents that If n 
child paid good attention to his work 
during the regular hours of school lie 
accomplished a day's work, and his next 
day's work should not be deadened b\- 
poring over tasks of a similar nature 
at night, .lust as our trade-unions put 
M r-it-mltiiii on overtime work. witii

traininn and mentality slmuld br looked 
after. sliTM- snr'ly lli"y am w >rtb 
q\iHe as much to the child ns the work- 
man's skin and strength are to him.' 
A New Jersey principal records fh./ 
discovery that a very small per<-enta,i'' 
of pupils learn the home lessons and 
that these do not progress faster than 
their Idle neighbors. Tlu- Canadian 
teacher's experience will tell her that 
th- rule on this side of the boundary 
15, the other way. Most children make 
DU attempt to learn their lessons. Is 
this effort wnsfd? Fifty years atr" 
one of the most suc<-,-ssful district 
school teachers In the Mnrlllm-' Prov- 
inces never reciulr'^d a pupil to Urtin 
n lesson at home. School whs, however, 
the business of the whole day and b-s- 
fions were studied In the classroom. In 
some private schools this practice ha:' 
been revived. Would children In the 
public schools learn better If all teach- 
ers undertook the oversight of their 
sitidles Instead of confining their ef- 
forts to the impart .ng of instruction 
and the hearing of lessons as many of 
them do now? The question is a very 
Important one. ''^

Victoria split up with ^?HBBi?-ll8hBe visit 
ing clubs, Seattle, Vancouver and New 
Westminster at the boxing and wrest- 
ling tournament in tlie Victoria Theatre 
last night, winning three Inter-clty 
bouts while each of tlie invaders took 
one. The programme was an excellent 
one, although there was not the exciting 
interest in the fray that there has been 
in past affairs of the kind. The house 
was packed to the doors, every r-eat be- 
ing sold. 

In the feature bout between Al Good- 
win, formerly of Spokane, but now a 
member of the J. B. A. A. string, and 
Frank Barrieau, of Vancouver, the ama- 
teur welterweight champion of Canada, 
the latter won in the extra round. 

Goodwin was not in form, and had not 
the steam to back up his apparent 
cleverness. He ducked and blocked 
cleverly, but Barrieau did by far the 
most of the leading, and with short left 
hooks and Jabs inflicted a lot of punish- 
ment in the second and third rounds. 
The Vancouver boy also jammed his left 
to Goodwin's body and swung his right 
to the head with good effect. The Bays' 
latest recruit seemed unable to fight 
back, and the disagreement between the 
judges at the end of the third round was 
inexcusable. In the extra round Barri- 
eau continued to hit Goodwin freely and 
tliere was nothing for Referee Jeffs to 
do but award him the fight. Both boys 
were strong at the finish. 

Goodwin and Barrieau will meet again 
in a Vancouver tournament on New 
Year's Day and, as the former has prom- 
ised to be in his best shape, they ought 
to put up a fine scrap. The Spokaner 
made a little speech last night, explain- 
ing to the gathering after his fight that 
he thought he could put away any of the 
amateurs In the Terminal City. 

Savles' Opponant Quit* 

The other bout which was looked for- 
ward to by by the fans in anticipation 
of something real good, that in which 
Al Davies. the Pacific Coast bantam 
champion figured, fizzled out in the sec- 
ond round'. "Scotty" Porter, the New 
VVestminster boy, quitting. He has a 
weak heart and a stinging right landed 
over that vita! spot caused him to drop 
his iiands and leave the ring. "It was 
the doctor's orders," he said. 

Porter showed that he knows how to 
box and was quick as a cat. He used 
his left to some advantage. Davies' 
dogged boring in and the manner in whicii 
ho crashed through the Mainlander's 
guard with blows straight from the 
•shoulder gave the lmpre.ssion that he 
would have been an easy winner in any 
case. Davies' guarding was beautiful. 

WrMtlJhff a FroBt 

The wrestling match was a frost In 
the first place Hardwick's expected Se- 
attle opponent did not come over and 
in the second place Hardwlek seemed 
unable to do anything with the man who 
was Bubstltuted, Mlddleton, of the J. B. 
A. A., and the two pranced slowly 
around the ring for two rounds, slioulder 
to Bhoulder. On one or two occasions 
one man would fall to his knee, hut 
outside of that they were both always 
on their feet. 

Xotta«r»U TB. Cl*xnent« 

Motherall and Clements, two J. B. A. 
A. 125-pounder8, put up a slashing, fur- 
ious battle, with the former covering up 
better than the latter. Motherall did 
the most leading, although he felt the 
effoct of Sonne healthy wallops from his 
opponent, and earned the decision. 
Sob KoXfty tb. Trti Tox. 

Fred Fox and Donald McKay, 130 
pounders, were nicely matched and g«v« 
th« fana three rounds ot good milling, 
replete with clean-cut, direct punching. 
An extra round was called for and Don- 
ald MoKay went after his man hard. 
He knocked Pox out with a right swing 
to the mouth. ' 

H«re Is MotM ngUMr. 

tn the Harry Wheeler-Frank HJcks 
welterweight bout the crowd was 
treated to an uproariously amusing ten 
or twelve minutes. Htcks is a big, 
loose-Jointed, good natured blonde with 
a long reach and a most terrifying up- 
perout He had no Idea but to hit and

to the mat dazed anil helpless. Lam- 
bert had it on Koss in reach and height. 
■Wyatt v». Cropper. 
Wyatt, a Ballard A. C. 125 pounder, 
gave a pretty exhibition agaipst Scott

Scotty McKay played all hla tricks 
in an effort to land a knockout In his 
contest with Gilbert, and i-n -dotr:?: .so 
he laid himself open to aoqio nasty 
short-arm punches, one of which knock- 
ed him down In the second round. Mc- 
Kay clearly earned the decision, al- 
though some of the fans could not see 
It. He landed two blows to one of Gil- 
bert's and his had far more steam be- 
hind thcni. 

Mayor Presents Medals 
In connection with the tournament the 
presentation of Olympic medals to Hal 
Beasl-ey and Tommy Gallon was made. 
Mayor Beckwith did the honors, con- 
gratulating the- boys warmly and com- 
menting on the very high regard clean 
sport of any kind was lield in by Vic-

swimming baths shortly to be establish- 
ed, would be a great boon to the city.

OTTAWA, Ont., Dec. 19.— -The Ottawa 
Hockey Club officers are apparently 
treating the raid of the Maritime Prov- 
ince clubs lightly. 

Today It wan announced that Manae%r 
ROS.S, of Syilnoy, had offered Fred Lake 
12200 for the season, but I.>ake was out 
with the Ottawas tonight, as well as 
Westwick and Losueur, both of whom 
had offers. 

Lowrey and Dufour wore with New 
Kdlnburgh, also Gregg and Basil George, 
who had been with the Stowartone. The 
latter left for Toronto tonight with a 
well-balanced team. 

Ketohell and O'Brien Draw 

SASKATOON, Sask., Dec. 19.— One 
thousand people saw Steve Ketchell, of 
Chicago, and Winnipeg O'Brien box 
fifteen rounds tonight to a draw. The 
bout was one of the fastest and mowt 
furious ever seen In Saskatoon. Ket- 
chell was the aggressor throughout and 
worked like a fiend, but th? wonderful 
defence of O'Brien seemed more than 
he could fathom.

Not long ago the fight fans of Vic- 
toria w<re knocking "Cyclone" Scott 
and covertly advising Joe Bayley to 
get a new trainer. Now they are won- 
dering If they did not overlook the fact 
that Scott is somebody. Why this 
change? Because the Cyclone has his 
ri.cord in a well-known 1913 athletic 
manual, which has just been issued. 
Who will make light of the efficacy ol 
a little judicious advertising'? 

Few of th-e fans ever knew that Cy- 
clone possessed such a thing as a rec- 
ord. Certainly it never entered their 
lieads that the big good-natured, easy 
going follow was, with the assistance of 
u sL-iiolarly friend, laboriously compil- 
ing a list of his fights for publication. 
He was never credited with the ambi- 
tion. Howavfer the Cyclone has done it 
and incldently has slipped one over on 
Joe Bayley, who, although the light- 
weight champion of Canada, has not yet 
broken into the record book.s. Joe says 
that he is going to be there in next

Mccarty's Plrst right 

Ever hear how McCarty won his first 
battle of any account? Numerous chim- 
erical stories have been going the 
rounds in this connection as Is only 
natuial now that McCarty is a leading 
"hope" but here is r plain, unvarnished 
version of the mann^or in which Luke 
made his debut in to the game, given ny 
a fan, now resident in Victoria. who 
was at the ring.slde. 

McCarty met Joe Grimm in Calgary 
two years ago last April. The flght 
went eight or nine rounds, with no ap- 
parent advantage either way. When the 
bell rang at the end of the last round 
Grimm turned and walked to his corner. 
McCarty — whether In Ignorance of the 
fact that the round was at an end or 
In flat disregard of such a triviality Is 
not clear — followed him up and punched 
him In the neck. Grimm turned around 
in surprise and McCarty soaked him 
again, this tlm^ on the Jaw. Grimm 
was naturally peeved and refused to 
come back for the next round. Clearly 
McCarty should have been disqualified,' 
but Instead the referee awarded him the 

Claim Bayley's Title 

It is high time that those who are 
looking after Joe Bayley get busy knd 
see that he gets the credit that Is com- 
ing to him. An exchange says that 
Dem Gay, an Alberta promoter. Is in 
San I-'ranclsco looking for talent to fur- 
nish the attractions at his club. Gay 
Is quoted as saying that the next bout 
in his arena will be a finish contest for 
the lightweight cha'mplonshlp of Can- 
ada now held by "Fighting" Dick Hy- 
land, who will defend his title against 
Kid Scaler on New Year's Day.

First Game in Victoria City 
Hocl<ey League — Both Out- 
fits in Form to Put up Good 

L.-^ A. Wattelet, of the Victoria Base- 
ball Club, left yesterday to attend the 
meeting of the Northwostern League 
directors in Tacama on Saturday. Be- 
fore leaving Mr. Wattelet confirmed the 
statement, which appeared in The Colon- 
ist, that the majority of the club own- 
ers would tuck Joe McOlnnity's pro- 
posal to institute four-game serleis next 

Mr. Wattelet will meet Bob Brown, 
the Vancouver boss, in Seattle today 
and the two will collaborate In outlining 
what they think would be a good 
schedule arrangement. The local mag- 
nate wants an even break in home 
games for all clubs -and, as three of the 
clubs have signified that they are with 
him in this, believes he will get It. 

Fielder Jones will probably be re- 
elected president of the league. There 
is no one after his job and he got by 
with a big margin to spare last season. 
Jones returned from the East a few 
days ago and on his arrival in Port- 
land declared that if the Northwestern 
League could not succeed this year 
there was no hope for It In the future. 
""VTIth Joe McGlnnny, the 'iron Man,' 
installed as the new owner at Tacoma, 
with Victoria showing eigns of becom- 
ing a winner or a first division club, 
and a new system ot splitting the re- 
ceipts for all games over half which 
are played away from home, the chances 
look bright," commented the Fielder. 

While In the Eas)/ Fielder saw most 
of the American League magnates and 
managers. At Chicago he ran into 
Charles Webb Murphy, the Cub mag- 
nate, who generally manages to keep his 
other brethren on the anxious seat. 

President Comlskey, of the White 
Sox, had but recently made an attack 
on him for letting Frauk Chance get 
away from him-, and Murphy told Jones 
fnat lie « ad preparing a story which he 
intended to s.prlng on the Chicago papers 
showing where Comiskey had made his 
greatest mistake by not treating Jones 
fairly, and causing his retirement when 
he was the most valuable man he had on 
the club. 

"Show me where the Sox have won 
any pennants since you left them," said 
Charlie. To date the story h%s not ap- 
peared, but he may still be framing it

VANCOUVER, B. C, Dec. 19. — The 
power yacht Kingpin, owned by Captain 
John S. Gall, was totally destroyed by 
fire while under way up the North Arm 
of the Inlrt while she was returning 
from a trip to Deep Cove last Saturday 
afternoon. The fire, which was started 
from some minor defect in a gasoline 
Btove, spread so rapidly that the owner 
and his brother, who were the only ones 
aboard at the time, wore forced to 
beuc'h tho yacht, and barely succeeded 
Ir getting ashore before the flames com- 
i)leted the destruction of the fine cruiser 
and when she burned to the water's edge 
the remains of her hull and mactilnery 
Bank in the deep water close to the 
steep, rocky shore line just south of 
Deep Cove. 

The Kingpin, was ono of the hest 
known power yachts in the Royal Van- 
couver Yacht Club's fleet, and repre- 
sents a loss of about $6000. Although 
the owner is a well known local Insur- 
ance man, he did not carry any Insur- 
ance on the yacht at the time. 


LOS ANGELES, Dec. 19.— The winner 
of the Al Palzer-Lulher McCarty fight 
on New Year's Day, will be declared 
champion of the world, but Tom Mc- 
Carey, the Los Angeles promoter. Is 
planning to ask the winner to fight 
Bombardier Wells, the English heavy- 
weight, so that lie will have a clear 
claim to the title. Local fans believe 
the winner will accept. Al Palzer 
knocked out Wells In a recent fight, but 
Wells had the best of it for a number 
of rounds, Palzer gamely standing by 
his guns. 

"The man who wins the decision at 
Vernon on New Year's Day will be the 
world's hcavywtght king," says McCarey. 
"There will not be a single man to ques- 
tion his title, however, in case he meets 
Wells. I do not credit the other's claims. 
If the winner of the coming fight meets 
Wells It win be the first time, in years, 
that an American and an Englishman 
have clashed for the world's heavy- 
weight title." 

Interest In the coming fight is keen. 
Johnny Cllne has made reservations for 
fourteen $5 seats for the event. Mc- 
Carey figures that the crowd which Will 
attend his show will tax the capacity 
of the Vernon barn. 



The following team will turn out for 
the Wanderers on Saturday against the 
Law Students to play on the University 
School groundi^: Fullback, Fawcett;

AUCKLAND, N.Z., Dec. 19.— Classing 
the Canadians as "great people," the 
Australian Rugby Football team, home- 
ward bound from its tour of the Pacific 
Coast of America,' arrived at this port 
aboard the Makura. 

The members of the team describe 
the tour recently taken as one long 
spell of happiness without any un- 
pleasantness whatsoever. 

Referring to the three defeats the 
team sustained while in British Co- 
lumbia, all the footballers are unani- 
mous that the Canadians won the 
laurels fairly and they had bumped up 
against better teams while In that 
Province. None of the members could 
offer any apologies for the defeats and 
declare that the men they met In Van- 
couver and "Victoria are thorough 
sportsmen, and that .the Canadians are 
grand, splendid Britishers. 


Lester Patrick etated yesterday that 
there waa absolutely no truth In the re- 
port that lie and his brother Frank

Mivje«tlc Theatre — ''The Klre Cop," 
aiuiilicr thrilling and sensational flre 
drama; this picture Is one of the best 
Solig has ever done In this line; the 
story involves a policeman who became 
a horo In spite of himself; a triple res- 
cue from the roof of a burning build- 
ing is one of the features. "The Grand- 
lather " a very pleasing Htor>- of senti- 
ment sot in a country village and ilcil- 
ing with the fortunes of a very kindly 
old man. "The Beauty Parlor of Stone 
Gulch," a farce whose name will at 
once make Us qualities clear to all who 
watch the film. "The New York Hat," 
a picture of a few human beings; they 
lUe in a small country town and seem 
In centre around the village church. It 
rloosn't .whut Its eyes to the frailties ot 
mortal nosh; but It Is optimistic, good 
natured and leaves a plea.sant taste. In- 
deed it Is a picrure among pictures to 
(intertnin. oneourage and amuse. "The 
Lonilon .■\nimated .lournal" shows 
gUmpsofy of Balkan war scenes, also a 
number of other items of deep interer*. 
It would bo well for every body to see 
this great progrramme at the Majestic 

Orystal Tbeatrd — Tho ehang^ of vau- 
deville the latter half of the weeii 
exceed.1 all expectations on the manage- 
ment's part. Advance reports had It 
that the two acts booked were excep- 
tionally good and they certainly are. 
Hariatt and Dad Is the title of one of 
the most pleasing acts seen here in 
many a day. This act is a singing, 
talking and novelty dancing act featur- 
ing a little girl and boy as well as their 
father. It la a clever and pretty act. 
The other act is a team composed of a 
man and woman Rnowfn as "The Camp- 
hells." This act has a reputation all 
over the Coast as one of the bfg acts 
and Judging from their porfiJrmance 
yesterday they certainly deserve the 
title. They have a singing, talking, 
(lancing and trlek violin playing act that 
Is a riot. The Catnpbells are not com- 
lr_;:. they are nore and very much here. 
It Is up to you to see two of the best 
acta that has ever graced the boards 
of tho Crystal j neatre. In pictures 
there Is a change that Is so good that 
it Is hard to tell which is the best. The 
feature Is "The Samaritan of Coogans 
Tenement," a Lubln drama that has a 
gripping powor. "Mamas Birthday Pres- 
ent," Is a pretty Kalcm subject acted 
by Juvenile chsracters that Is very 
ploaslnf. "Sheriff Pro Tern," Is a Me- 
Uos drama that ftimlshes the Western 
purt of tha proaramtne. "Young Mrs. 
E^aton" Is an fc'dlson drritna l^iat Is good 
ae ar*. all iOdlsons. Take advanlrige of

LONDON, Doc. I'J.— Sir Henry -Nor- 
man, whose criticisms in the House of 
Commons on the Marconi contract led 
to the inquiry, was the chief witnous be- 
fore the select committee yesterday. He 
declared that the ratification of the 
agreement of 1912 would bo contrary to 
public interest, would inevitably result 
in something approaching monopoly t»y 
the Marconi Company, and would be an 
e.\travagance with public money, preju- 
dicial to the scientiric development of 
wireless telegraph. If Hie agret;meiit 
were ratified he said, inventors would he 
compelled to go to the Marconi Com- 
pany, hat in hand. Jf their inventioni? 
.were refused they would be dlscou raged. 
If purcliased tliey would lend to luo- 
mote monopoly. 

Sir Henry hold that the agreement of 
100!) gave the Postmaster General the 
riirht to prosoni future Marconi patents 
and all Information as to secret pro- 
cesses. Tho Postmaster General had al- 
ready acquired for casli every right he 
was now seeking; therefore tlie agree- 
ment of 13ia was superfluous. 

1 ill) witness alleged ihat tn« plea of 
urgency was baseless and emphatically 
opposed the handing over, lock, stock 
and tiarrel, of a great Imperial scienti- 
fic undertaking to a conimereial com- 
pany. If the Australian post office and 
the American army could maintain their 
own wireless service, he regarded the 
suggestion of placing the service in the 
hands of the Marconi Company as humi- 
liating, and protested against it as an 
affront to British science and enterprise. 
Letters were then submitted to tiie 
Committee by the I^ostmasler General 
in reply to press criticisms on tlie trans- 
actions in Marconi shares etan<llng In 
the name of his relative, Hon. Gerald .S. 
Montague, in which It was said that 
Montague never purchased Maroon! 
shares himself, but his name had been 
used as a banker to hold shares in i>e- 
lialf of Amorstam correspondents.

I/ONDON, Ufc. 19.— Homethlnir of a 
eeriHatton has been caused among Brit- 
ish .scl-enilstt! by the news of a very 
remarkable urchaeol'Oflcal discovery- 
Just made la Mexico, which helps to 
prove the theory tliat has long been 
held that th« ancient livlUicaltonB of 
Mexlc-o and Peru preceding that of tho 
Aztecs were really of Chiueso or Mon- 
golian origin. 

I''or more than a year past an expe- 
dition, composed of British, American, 
and Mexican Archaeologists, headed by 
Sir Martin Conway, Professor William 
Nlycn, an<J Senor Ramon Mona, has 
been sH-archins: among the ancient ruins 
of Mexico and Yucatan, in the liope of 
unravelllnir the mystery of the wonder- 
ful Maya civilisation. Finally, dose 
to and partly beneath the ruins of the 
ancient city of Tootihuacan, about 
nineteen miles of Mexico 
city, tliey uncovered the still inoro an- 
cient city of Otumba, which flourished 
with a wondrous civilization centuries 
before the Aztecs or Tolteca ros« to 
power, iierhapa even before Babylon 
and Ninevtli f:wa><'il the destinies of 
nien. ' ■' ' " 

With tlio financial assistance of the 
^Mexican aovernment the expedition 
began tlio removal of a .six-foot layer 
of eartli, representing the dust and det- 
litii..^ iii more than twenty centuries. 
Tills sui.m brought into view many evi- 
dences of a vast and populous city of 
a very lilgh order of civilization. Chl^f 
amonK tiiese was a great pyramid. It 
is 700 f-eet square at the, and its 
apex Is 187 feet high, while many of 
the giant blocks of stone In Us mas- 
sive walla must have required extra- 
ordinary engine^'rlng skill to handle. 
This pyramid also has its riddle, for 
the axis of the main gillery is coinci- 
dental with the magnetic meridian. 

Near the pyramid was found another 
r'^markable building called the "Casa- 
Plntada," or painted house. On the

Then came the greatest discovery of 
all. While excavating near the base of 
the groat pyramid. Professor Nlven 
unearthed the remains of yet a third 
clvllUatlon beneath the ruins of an- 
cient Otumba. making three great cities 
of lost and forgotten races, built one 
above the ojlher. 

In wliat appears to have been a tomb 
of the lowest city, whoae ago so far 
defies calculation. Professor Niven 
found the clay image of a Chinaman, 
with oblique eye-silts, padded coat, 
flowinij trousers, and slippers. Only 
the queue was lacking to make a com- 
plete portrait of a mandarin of the re- 
cently defunct Chinese Empire. It 
should be remembered, however, that 
the Chinese did not adopt the queue 
until Hfter they had been conquered by 
the Tartar hordes from the North. 

The ininpe is about seven inches In 
length, and where tile arms are broken 
the edges of the clay show red, and 
friable in the centre. Tiie outer sur- 
face of the clay, howc\er, I3 of srranlte 
hardness, and it is only with the great- 
est difficulty that it can be chipped 
witli a biiitimcr. In the ears are huge 
rliig.s, mid on tlif In fid Is a .ikuUcnp 
with a small button In the centre, pre- 
cisely like that worn by llie modern 
mandarin. The coat, which is loose and 
of the type still worn by the older, Is fastened with a frog and 
button, and on the bresst is a circular 
plate, evidently once covered with a 
thin layer of beaten gold> but worn 
bare by contact with the earth for un- 
known centuries. 

"This Chinese Image," writes Prpfes- 
sor Niven, "was not made by the Az- 
tecs. It Is much older, and proves that 
the ancient people of Mexico wore fa- 
miliar with the Mongol type. It was, 
found In a tomb or bedchamber beneath 
the ruins of two other ancient civiliz- 
ations, thirty feet and three Inches be- 
low the surface. The room, which waii 
thirty feet square, and built of concrete 
walla, was probably a tomb. On a 
raised cement platform In the centre 
lay the skull and bones of a man of 
not more than five feet In height. His 
arms were very long, reaching almost 
to his knees, while his skull was of a 
decidedly Mongol type. Around his 
neck had been a string of green jad> 
beads — another link In the Chinese 
theory, for real Jade has never been 
found in Mexico In the natural state. 
areatast I'ind of AU 

"Beside the skeleton was a string of 
597 pieces of shell. With this money 
lay the greatest find of all — the llttl*! 
Chinaman. It is the first of the kind 
ever found In Mexico, though Mongol 
types are found In sufficient numbers 
among tlie Am-erlran and Mexican In- 
dians to argue an Asiatic origin. Near 
the platform was a flower vase, about 
IB Inches high, that had evidently been 
filled with xoehite, the sacred yellow 
flower of al! these ancient races of 

"It should be borne In mind that this 
Image was not a god, or an idol, but 
an ornament — perhaps a portrait done 
In clay by some prehistoric sculptor. 

"The RKfi of the figure Is difficult to 
determine without further data. Cir- 
cumstances, however, warrant the rough 
guess that about 5.000 years ago Chin- 
ese navigators crossed the Pacific in 
their primitive junks and discovered 
America tho\isands of years before Co- 
lumbus was born. Settling there they 
built a city, and In a grave of one or 
their number, many years after, a clay 
Image of the man was buried with him. 
This great city fell Into ruins — perhaps 
through conquest — but the image lay 
safe. The ruins of tms first city were 
covered with earth, and there arose 
through the centuries another splendid 
and mysterious city. This, too. fell into 
ruins, and upon it was raised a third 
metropolis of «ome forgotten race of 
men. At last the third city crumbled 
Into dust, but beneath them all the 
Chinaman's Image still lay safe and 
undisturbed until a little group of 
searchers In the cause of science. In 
this wonderful twentieth century of 
ours, have brought it to light, and per- 
haps through It we may now solve the 
enigma of the New World's beginning." 

Mr. W. J. Lord, a butcher of Hamil- 
ton, had to pay 30 cents a pound, live 
weight, for the best shorthorn steer at 
the fat stock show at Toronto last 
week. This animal was the first prize 
winner at the Toronto Exhibition this 
year, first at Ottawa, first at the Chi- 
r«go International Show, and finally 
first at the Union Stocit Yards Show 
this month. It was Kred by Messrs 
.Tames Leask ft Sons, of Oreenbank. 
Price* for other beef animals ranged 
from • cents to 18 centa.

Trim Steamship on Seattle Run 


Was Dynamited by Pirates and 
Valuable Cargo Taken — 
Fanning Island Is a Cable 

Wltlv the tloparture of the steamer 
Kestrel for Honolulu last evening, what 
is probably iho last has been seen of one 
of tho n^ost widely known of Dominion 
Uovernment Fisheries Protection cruis- 
ors. Tho ICestrel has outlived her days 
of usefulness to the Dominion, and 
-sonio months ago was sold ,to Armstrong 
.it Armstrong, of London, who will use 
her in trading between Chrl;-' "■m- 

7iing and the Hawaiian Isi.: ; .She 

was thoroughly overhauled before her

In whlcii sh<^ has )ieretofoi-e been 

Christmas Jslaiul sprang Into promln- 
'rnco some years ago as tho scene of the 
wreck of the steamer Aeon, which was 
bound for Australia with a miscelian- 
<jous cargo valued at ninety-five thou- 
sand pounds, and carrying a number of 
the wives of officers of the American 
floot, which was then on Us hiatorlo 
globe-enclrcliniti: cruise, to Jotn their, hliB.- 
bands In .Sydney. X. S. V,'. 

The wreck of the Aeon was purchased 
when Lloytl's auctioned her off in Syd- 
ney by Mr. Frank Coffee, of that city. 
In, partnership with Mr. r. Daffy, of Han 
Francisco, who Is engaged in the fruit 
exporting business from Canada and the 
TTnltcJ States to Australia. The price 
]>aid was four thousand pounds. On a 
share basis a wrecking company was 
formed in Auoitland, N. Z., which out- 
fitted a tramj) steamer of 1500 tons bur- 
den, under the command of a man fa- 
miliar with the South Seas, to do the 

Messrs. Coffee and Duffy received tn- 
ftvrmation that where the Aoon lay there 
wa."? no danger of her breaking up, as 
she was and dry even at high tide. 
.She had aboard her two phosphor-bronze 
propellers, which alone were valued at 
a sufficient amount to more than cover 
their jjurchase price; and, in addition, 
she liad nearly two million feet of red- 
wood and pine lumber, which would not 
be affected by the salt water; as well 
as some thousand cases of canned goods, 
oils, and two hundred marine petrol en- 
gines. To further ensure success and 
to prevent the possibility of piracy from 
any of the Islands, througli the influ- 
ence of the late .Sir ,Tohn See, then Pre- 
mier of New South Wales, tho Admir- 
alty dispatched II. M. S. Cambrian to 
visit the Island and watch the wreck 
until the salvage steamer arrived. Bad 
weather delayed the warship for some 
time, and one her arrival she found that 
the hull had been dynamited and the 
easily-removed portion of her cargo, and 
the most valuable, had l>een taiion away, 
and the balance so damaged as to be 
almost worthless. Traces Indicated that 
the pirates had come from an American 
port, but on account of the certain heavy 
expense and costliness of litigation, It 
wa« decided to let tho matter rest there 
and write off a loss. 

Chrlntmas Island, the sole product of 
which Is guano, most of which at one 
time went to Lever Brothers, tho Port 
Sunlight firm, which ov/ns many South 
Sea. Islands, was owned until about a 
year ago by Father Rougler, a million- 
aire priest of Suva, who sold it to an 
EJngllsh syndicate. There Is a possslbll- 
Ity that It may be utilized by the Ad- 
miralty as a coaling station, and if so 
the Kestrel will be a supply ship. 

Fanning Island at which the Canadian- 
Australian liner Makura calls every 
three months, Is a coral atoll, and was 
onoe fished for pearls. It is now a 
relay station for the Pacific Cable 
Board, and until a few months ago had 
la white population of eight men 
and two women. C'V>pra may be 
d«veloi>ed there and a small amount of 
Kuano. The Kestrel will be a supply 
ship for this island also, and with 
Honolulu only eleven hundred miles off, 
the inhabitants will be able to keep In 
closer touch with their fellow-beings. 
Calling there has always meant delay 
for the Australian liners, and ■ In bad 
weather It Is impossible to see tho atoll 
more than twenty miles off, on account 
of its low elevation, coooanut palms be- 
ing the landmarks. It Is proposed to 
utilise it as a government wireless sta- 
tion' in the near future. 

On acount of her small slao the Kes- 
tral had to fill her hold with coal for 
the 2000-knot Journey to Honolulu. She 
waj9 built for the Dominion Govomqient 
at a cost of $65,000, though certain 
Oovemment offlcere strongly urged the 
purchase of the Black Eagle, a hand- 
somely appointed la'ge steel yacht be- 
lon^ng to the estate of the O^ike of

The big Blue Funnel liner Bellerophon, 
carrying a record cargo of raw ,sllk, 
valued at a.bout two ai^d a half million 
dollars, is due to arrive here this morn-

After discharging the malls she pro- 
ceeds to Tacoma to dlseharge her silk 
and other cargo. Ae she has been mak- 
ing gi>od time Captain ColUster may be 
proud of the fact that his ship has 
eclipsed the record for silk shipments 
to the United States, heretofore hold 
by the Titan, of the same company. 

After] discharging the silk and olhor 
consignments at Sound ports she re- 
turns, here to discharge 2,000 tons of 
general freight, then proi'ceding to Van- 
couver to complete unloading. 

She has a fairly large list of Chinese

fic Exceptionally Heavy 

Although the ice in the St. Lawrence 
was unusually troublesome last Spring 
and the opening of navigation was 
somewhat delayed, the port of Montreal 
had a good seven months' senson, over 
every month of which tho trade of th<! 
port was very evenly distributed. The 
business being so Rood In May and No- 
vember, has suggested to shipping in- 
terests that anything that can bo done 
to prolong the season of navigation is 
Well worth doing. 

Passenger iralTlc east and West has 
l)f-en exceptionally heavy and the west- 
bound pas.senger traffic was the highest 
on record. The custom.i receipts for tho 
.sea.'son were 115,508,124, an Increase of 
»4. 333, 134 over 1911. The wheat traffic 
through the Lachlne Canal was more 
than double that of 1911. A .small de- 
crease is reported In the number of 
sea-going vessels, but the tonnage was 
larger — 2,403,024 tons against 2,339,252 
tons In 1911. The revrnue of the port 
was $461,396.43 for 1912, as compnrPd 
with 1430,623.24 last year.

Another Candidate for Munici- 
pal Honors Puts in an Ap- 
. pearance — Voters' League 
Is Aggressive. 

Another entrant Into the alderraanlc 
field announced his candidature yester- 
day In the person of Mr. W. C. Van 
Munster, architect. 102 Moss Street, who 
has been urged by a number of friends 
to seek office at the forthcoming civic 
electlona Mr. Van Munster has been a 
resident of Victoria for the past five 
years, and while he has had no previous 
council experience,, has been one of tlie 
city's sjiccessful business men since his 
arrival here. 

It Is hardly likely that any decided 
interest in municipal politics will be 
.displayed by would-be candidates until 
after the Christmas Holidays, though 
the election will be held In about a 
month's time. The Voters' League have 
commenced to prepare for the campaign, 
and will probably have a list of can- 
didates at the polls. A meeting of tho 
League was held on Wednesday even- 
ing, when the names of a number of 
gentlemen who would prove acceptable 
and would receive the support of that 
organization in case they offer them- 
selves for oloctioii were considered. A 
cammittce. was iippointed to investigate 
the merits of the gentlemen suggested 
and to report as to their willingness to 
offer thenvselves for election. 

While the date of the election has 
not yet been fixed, it will probably be 
lield on Thursday, January IS, as It Is 
customary to select that day of the 
week, and it is about the customary 
time of the month. I'he resolution fix- 
ing the date will likely be submitted at 
next Monday night's meeting of tho 
City Council, 



Cnnllntied from rmce 1. 

cure a property which calls for such a 
large outlay for improvements. 

Mr. Gilman declared he appreciated 
the fact tliat to accept the offer the 
city would be suffering a heavy loss on 
account of the money already paid for 
interest on the bonds it and the Gov- 
ernment had guaranteed during the past 
twenty years, but It seemed to him that 
the city is in the position of a creditor 
of a bankrupt concern and the question 
1? how much it can secure and get out 
of a bed bargain. 

S«ea Value in Koldinffs 

Alderman Stewart referred to the 
value of the Company's real estate hold- 
ings, especially that portion near Hill- 
side Avenue, tlie trackage on which had 
been abandoned. That property wa« 
worth more than the company offered 
the city. 

Mr. Gilman pointed out that the Com- 
pany must have yards near its ter- 
minals, especially as it must sooner or 
later relinquish the Blanchard Street 
tracks for storage purposes. 

'The .sooner the people of this Coast — 
and I am not confining myself to Brit- 
ish Columbia, but referring to the en- 
tire Pacific Coast — cease urging Invest- 
ment in town lots and skyscrapers and 
start a movement encouraging the in- 
vestment of money in stump-pulling the 
better It will be," declared Mr. Oilman, 
in response to the statements of the 
value of the real estate holdings of the 
Company. "These values cannot keep 
up if the people insist on breeding a 
class of consumers instead of a class of 
producers. The idea that Vancouver Is- 
land is intended to be a region of town- 
sites la wrong and to base values upon 
that Idea is utterly erroneous." 

Alderman Gleason explained the city 
has no desire to insist upon undue 
terms, but the road is now in the posi- 
tion of showing a profit, which is yearly 
Increasing, and the connection of tho V, 
& S. with the Mainland will yearly grow 
in value. He urged that the Company 
should pay back what the city had been 
c*lled upon to spend under Its guarantee 
of the bonds, the city to not pres« the 
Company, but to permit it to pay back 
the amount as it can out of profits. 
Tbe Company's Contention 

Mr. Gilman: How can tho Great 
Northern pay 1300,000 on the bond prin- 
cipal, $300,000 for arrears of Interest, 
$75,000 on Interest on the bonds for the 
balance of the term the bond.-* have to 
run, and then pay $100,000 required for 
betterments? In addition the Company 
will next year have competition from 
the B. C. Electric Company. An repre- 
aenttng the Great Northern Hallway, ho 
wtM there, not to dicker over the "lebta 
of the V. & 8. Com-pany, but to make un 
offer for the property, which he did not 
consider was worth, to the Great 
Northern, anything like the obligations 
which are on It. 

Alderman Gleason auggested that the 
Company pay the city $100,000 In full 
settlement, the city to permit the com- 
pany to pay it on easy terms. 

Mr. Gilman: I will be willing to pay 
$100,000 on Mr. Gleaaon's terms as I 
undertitand them, If he means that fhti 
Great Northern will pay It as It can out 
of the yearly profits. 

Alderman Okell: How long would It 
tAke to pay It on that basis? 

Mr. 011m«nr Abont 100 years. The 
balance sheet of the V. * 8. iThows that 
that Company ha« not paid fixed 
charges and operating expens<;s. 

Alderman 0)t«ll declared the Council 
wm» merely wasting time. He moved 
that the offer of the Company t»« re> 
fuMd. and ehe action initiated laat y«ar 
against tlt« V. * 8. be prooe4ded with.

bond payments and at the same time 
make It easy for the Company. ' 

Alderman Oleaaon's suggestion was 
seconded by Alderman Stewart aud ear> 
rled, the Mayor and Aldermen Gleason. 
Stewart, Dllworth, Porter and Ander- 
son supporting it. while 'Aldermen Okell 
and Humber opposed It- 
Mr. Oilman was called back to the 
Council chajnbcr, ai^l as the action of 
the Council , was belpg explained, he sat 
plapidly putting a large olgar and blow- 
ing bmoke ringe. 

"No,.i Qan*t:a«copt it," he sUted, after 
a moment's cowaldefailon. "I'm satis- 
fied the Great Northern , will not. Of 
coarse I wlll^ report your decision to the 
head office." 



Co nt^nied fram Pa g e 1. 

At this atogr Mr. Oilman waa MtoM 
to ratlM for a tine, and AMerinatt OImP 

regarding the free and unappropriated 
seats at all .early celebrations of Holy 
Communion taid at the evening service 
on Sunday, wats one of advice and coun- 
sel to the rector and wardens. 

"Acting upotn this the rector in an of- 
ficial letter adUressed to the seat-holders, 
requested tharn to be good enough to 
comply with the expressed wish of the 
Vestry and this meeting most earnestly 
trusts that the rector's request may 
meet with the approval of all In order 
that the unanimous opinion of the Ves- 
try may .be duly carried into effect." 
Onthedral Site 

The Dean explained that ibe meeting 
had been called to receive the report of 
tho Cathedral Site Committee, for al- 
though It had not yet flnish-ed its work 
It had been thc^ught best that it should 
be asked to give Its report owing to the 
'terge number lOf questions which had 
been ji»k<?d,- matiyof whleiv he proc*«d«d 
to outline to the vestry. 

The report of the committee was then 
read by the Blsh/^p, who stated that the 
former body had been appointed to act 
as advisers on the matter to himself 
and the Dean. Tho gist of this was 
contained In the two resolutions. 

His Lordship next wad a letter from 
Mr.' W. D. Caroe, the well-known archi- 
tect, who recently visited Victoria, and 
who at his request looked over tho 
present cathedral site and also that of 
Biahpclose. Mr, Caroe pointed out that 
regarding the present site, if Its sur- 
roundings could remain as they were 
today. It would be a fine one for a 
monumental building, but once the land 
around it was built up with high build- 
ings, any advantage which It might 
have over the BIshopsclose site must 
be only ephemeral, unless the frontage 
across the street could be purchased and 
used for modest ' buildings, that wuld 
not mar the view. Also, he thought 
that the site was too narrow — and that 
there would be no room for subsidiary 
buildings. BIshopsclose, on the other 
hand, was free from such drawbacks 
Qtiestloii of rtnanoes 

Mr. Percy Wollaston then read a 
statement regarding tho desirability of 
Craigdarroch as a possible site, com- 
paring the respective merits and de- 
merits of the different sites, he pointed 
■out that one of the advantages of BIsh- 
opsclose was that at the back of it was 
the old Quadra Street cemetery, which 
had been laid out as a park, and would 
be kept so for all time, so that It would 
font* a natural cathedral cIo««e. He was 
of tlie opinion that thej^ should not 
start the work of building until they 
had at least $100,000 In hand. He pro- 
ceeded to give the estimated cost of 
building on each of the three sites un- 
der consideration. To build on the 
present site would cost approximately 
$366,017; on Blshopclose property, $252,- 
167 and on Craigdarroch site, $249,184. 

He asked if they were right to ap- 
proacli the public for a large sum when 
the diocesan funds needed help «o bad- 
ly. The Clergy Pension Fund had now 
only $2,000 in the bank whereas they 
should have at least $5,000, while the 
Widows and Orphans' Fund also needed 
help. In addition to this they were hin- 
dered through lack of funds In obtain- 
ing more clergy, and many of those 
they had were wretchedly underpaid. 

Mr. K. B. Taylor having suggested 
that the present cathedral site should 
be let out as ground rents, as done by 
the Ecclesiastical Commissioners In 
London, the Dean stated that as Rector 
of the cathedral under no consideration 
would he give his consent to the sale 
of the present property for at least five 

Ai-cMtect Xzplaiiui 

A plan of tlio proposed site on BIshops- 
close was next thrown upon a sheet, 
and explained to the gathering by Mr. 
.1. (\ M. Keith, archlto<'t, who was pres- 

The Bishop pointed out that the oa- 
thedral was the heart of the whole dio- 
cese and outlined some of his plans for 
the future In connection therewith, 
which, as he stated In his recent charge. 
Included the appointment of a Canon- 
Mlssioner, to go to and fro throughout 
the scattered districts, and of anotlTcr 
clergyman to look especially after the 
welfare of the Sunday Schools, which 
was very necessary In view of the lack

A Qnastlou of Ags 

There are beautiful old face-i, but 
It is to be feared they arc the excep- 
tion. The question of the age when a 
woman is at tier best has come up In 
connection with the propo.swl memorial 
of Queen Victoria. Most of us think 
of youth as the period of beauty. That 
Is not always the conception of the 
artist. A T.ondon paper dl.scusKlng the 
subject says: 

•'The Kaiser, when a memorial to hla 
mother was erected at Homburg. di- 
rected that tlie ."sculptor should follow 
a portrait taken of her at tlie age of 
forty. This seems a good period to 
select; It la the prime of life, when ex- 
perience and thouglit have developed 
the countenance, and yet time lias not 
destroyed the contour of tlie features 
or thickened or bent the form. Queen 
Victoria lierKclf provided that her tomb 
should show liei- effigy at that age. 
When her husband died In hl.«) prime, 
at the age of forty-two. she took this 
matter out of the hands of posterity by 
ordering the preparation of her own ef- 
figy at the same time witli his. and. of 
course, representing herself as she wa.i 
at the same age. So that, although 
she lived nearly a-s many more y/?ar.«, 
it is not the stout figure and heavy 
countenance of old age that arc shown 
In her image reclining beside the ef- 
figy of the Prince upon the M.Tu.soleum 
at Frogmore, but a presentation of 
Queen Victoria as she was known to 
her people In the prime of her era; and 
surely, like most of her decisions, that 
was right and wise. 

"Her real metnorla! still remains in 
the records of her carer; thr heart of 
gold, tlie will of steel, enclosed in .i 
tiny woman's form; the charact<^r al- 
ready developed charmingly in the girl 
of Bcarcc eighteen, who' wrote in her 
diary on the day of her ai'cesslon: 'I 
hhall do my utmost to fulfil my duty 
towards my country. . . . T am sure 
that very few have more real desire 
to do what is fit and right tlian I liave" 
— and still active and cnpable wh^n 
once more, an aged Queen, after sixty 
years' rule, she reiterated her deter- 
mination to 'serve my beloved country 
as long as my life shall last.' Here is 
thB memory that grows in the esteem, 
the more intimate the records that ore

Replying to the rppresentatlons of 
his vlsUors, Sir Richard M<'Bride re- 
ferred In sTTacefuI terms to hl.-j and the 
Oovernment's full appreciation of the 
pleasant relation* existing between the 
administration and the Vancouver 
Board, whose conferences with the Gov- 
ernment were always of a most friendly 
iharacler and appreciated aa distinctly 
helpful. During ten years or more the 
Board had .shown Itself In close and In- 
terested touch with Governmental af- 
fairs, and only pleaisurable remem- 
brance wa.s associated with each con- 
tact. At times the Board had touched 
wpori problems wblcH might not m 
once have secured the same recogni- 
tion from the Government that the 
Board had looked for, but their sugges- 
tions had always been earnest, pro- 
gressive and to a large extent practical 
and useful, and In the aggregate many 
results of benefit to the country liad 
been brought about through their rep- 
resentations He had on the present 
occasion been much impressed by the 
representations put forward, which 
he could see had been arrived at 
only after the most careful study of 
conditions that circumstances allowed. 
A Prfmarjr CoaaldaratiOB 

In connection with the problem of 
land settlement, the quality of the set- 
tlers was a primary consideration that 
must always be kept In view. The Gov- 
ernment, while It had not been saying 
much as to Its course In this matter, 
was nevertheless doing all In Its power 
under existing conditions to promote 
land settlement and the development of 
the agricultural Industry. Conditions at 
the present time in British Colum'bia 
were someTvhat abnormal, city popula- 
tion having grown out of proportion to 
rural population, with the result that 
Britlsli Columbians wera necessarily Im- 
porting a large proportion of their food- 
stuffs which naturally ishould be grown 
at home. Tbe Government had been 
collecting statistics month by month and 
year by year, and found that Instead of 
the desired Improvement In this direc- 
tion having been brought about, British 
Columbians still continued to import 
much of their food requirements. Tliere 
was but one explanation: the large cen- 
tres were growing more rapidly and dis- 
proportionately to the rural areas, and 
It was up 10 the Government to do all 
In Its power to rectify conditions. The 
first requirement wa« unquestionably 
facilities of transport, and the Govern- 
ment was doing all that was possible 
to meet this requirement by railway con- 
struction and the building of trunk 
roads. It could n6t be gainsaid that 
British Columbia at the present time. In 
railway, road and trail construction, was 
doing more tban any other two Prov- 
inces In the history of Canada, and he 
might aay, making a very fair Job

how many farming aettlementa were 
aprlnging up all over British Columoia 
from the Skeena Valley to the 49th 
parallel. Most of these settlements 
~w«re being assembled near to the ri>w 
railway lines and the Provincial -trunk 
roads, and he looked to see along thc^ 
Grand Trunk Pacific, the Canadian 
Northern Pacinc, the Kettle Valley Road 
and the Victoria, Vancouver and East- 
ern, as well as along the Pacific. Great 
Eastern and the extensions on Vancou- 
ver Island of the Canadian Pacific and 
the Canadian Northern Paclflc, many 
other sncli settlements brought into 
existence in the very near future. 
Oood Traak Soada 
Contemporaneous with railway con- 
stuctlon Ihoughout the Povince must 
be the buildinR of good trunk roads. 
Hon. Mr. Taylor waj* now engaged in 
the development of a policy of road ex- 
tension that would he found to fully 
measure up to the demands of Provinc- 
ial conditions and the uecessltlos of set- 

As soon as the four new lines of 
railway now building were completed, 
and this would be -within three years, n 
feat In transportation woukl have been 
accomplished that was probably without 
a parallel. Van<'0uver within Uiree 
years would have in addition to its 
present railway servicei*, the Kettln 
Hlver Valley, the Paclflc Gr.oat Kaslcrn. 
the Canadian Northern Paclflc and tli- 
Victoria, Vancouver and Eastern con- 
tributing to its commerce. Jlc could 
not atiree with Mr. Stone's conclusion 
that only one of these railways would 
Hwsist dev-elopment of the commerce of 
Vancouvi-r .or the^agxIculturaJ—intiireaL 
Between Kamloops and tlie Yellowhead 
Pas.? was one remarkably promising 
district which he looked to .see settled 
not ^ily by hundreds hut liy thou.^ands 
Of agricultiirlst.K. 

Coast Markets 

Along the Kettle Valley Uailway, too, 
there was an abundance of good land 
to be brought under cultivation and . In 
touch with coast markets. Similar con- 
ditions obtained along the V. V. and E. 
the Kootenay Central and the Paclflc 
Great Eastern. These companies were 
not building theii- lines for fun or with- 
out Investigation and substantia! 
knowledge of tlie potentialities' Of the 
districts to be traverBe<l and which 
must be looked to for their future traf- 
Hc. He thought tliat Mr. .Stone sliould 
tlierefore qualify his statement in ihla 

Mr. Stone interj.'ctid tliat his refer- 
ence to the PaclHc Great Eastern had 
been meant only in so far aa the com- 
mercial interests of Vancouver were di- 
rectly affected. 

Even so. Sir Richard held t!ie opin- 
l,on that he was incorrect, inasmuch sat 
the Kettle Valley and V. V. and E. lines 
would also be of great assistance to tho 
commercial growth of Vancouver. ffe 
desired to again emphasize the para- 
mount necessity In the encouragement 
of settlement of the Government being 
able to give assurance of ffood roads. 
The road qcstion liad necessarily to be 
considered In conjunction with the prob- 
lem of Isnd settlement, and the Gov- 
ernment had learned by experience the 
desirability of building ten miles of 
really good road in preference to a 
hundred miles of roads impassable at 
certain seasons of the year. 

Careful Oonalderatloa 

The sugftestlons made by tlie depu- 
tation were exceedingly Interesting, 
and as they concerned different depart- 
ments of the Government would be care- 
fully considered by such departments. 
Each proposal would have to be studied 
carefully and would be ftiven due 
thought and weight. The Government 
was doing it.? best to meet conditions 
as they obtain without visiting upon 
the Province any possibility of a reaction 
which might seriously Impair the 
chances of British Columbia securing a 
major share of the newcomers coming 
to the Dominion to establish their 
homes. With four important railways 
instead of one to serve the transporta- 
tion necessities of the country. British 
Columbia would soon be obtaining all 
the population of which It stood In need. 
The wisdom of the Governnwnt In. se- 
ouring construction of the Canadian 
Northern Pacific had not been more 
strikingly evidenced than in the deci- 
sion of the C^anadlan Pacific IJnilway 
to double-track Us line: and In the mat- 
ters under consideration it should never 
be forgotten that settlement to be satis- 
factory should be on a permanent basis 

All the recommendations of the visi- 
tors will be carefully considered by the 
Government and he felt confident that 
the administration would benefit 
through the counsel and advice contain- 
ed In the memorandum. The Govern- 
ment at all times welcomed the assist- 
ance that was to be found In the sug- 
gestions and the criticism of Its friend.-?

The Chinese Government Has

of the Recently Concluded

PEKING, Dec. 19 The terms of the 

RuBso-MongoUan Treaty of November 3 
are published here. 

The Chinese regard them aa far more 
comprehensive than the Manchiirlan 
ayreementa, which finally led to tho 
Russo-Japanese war. 

The features to whkh tlie Chinese 
particularly object as encrouihinK on 
China's sovereignty are the rlKht.s they 
give Russia to send consuls and con- 
sular Kuards to all Mongolian ports and 
to establish postofflccs. 

The Treaty also accords to Russia 
freedom of trade and manufactories, the 
risrht. to buy lands, to arrange conces- 
sions for mining, flshint' and forestry, 
and for the navifjatlon of the rlver.s

the Italian Foreign Minister, concerning 
the aims of the '1 riple Alliance, and re-

NKW YORK. Uoc. 19:— There was an

Stoclis were in small supply, and hold-

leaders were abU: lo make some head- 
way. The announcement after the close 
yesterday that the Union t'actflc nian- 
ugcmont had been unable to agree with 
the Attorney-GenoiTal upon a plan of

L'>NI)OX, Doc in. -.Absence of 
change in the Bank of Knglanrl rate 
caused uncAsinesR this afternoon. The 
action of the directors not to make any 
change is believed to he due to the post- 
ponement of some Impending gold wllh- 
drawals and a better continental out- 
look. Discount rates eased off, while 
a general improvement resulted In stock 
prices. Consols gamed 6- J 8. G. T. R. 
and .Metfopoiltan Railwa.v were in fair 
demand. American securities, after 
early firmness, with < . P. B. a feature, 
reactt^d on profit -taking and Xew York 
.selling. Prices, however, hardened 

again in the afternoon and closeil 
steady. The underwriters took 85 per 
cent of the New South Wales loan of 
fifteen million dollars.
